  1. shop made hand tools

    I have seen so many of the incredible planes and tools you all have, I thought I would risk your wrath and just share a couple of mine, The planes are pretty typical, I think the only unusual thing may be the corian throats I have put in a couple, other than that, just nice comfortable little...
  2. My New Miter Saw Bench

    My old workbench was WAY too big, 12 ft and my old saw was not even close to accurate enough for joinery (old harbor freight 12" sliding miter) I cut 4 ft off my bench and installed the new Ridgid 12" sliding miter saw. The new saw presented some challenges of its own. To keep the 70 degree...

    Picked up a little gift for myself last week when L.V. had there Free Delivery! Interested in seeing the difference between this saw and my Veritas D.T. Having a hard time deciding what wood to try it out on?
  4. Focus on the Workspace
    I've been recently beefing up my handtool collection with some new and new-to-me handplanes and a set of LV saws. I want to keep them close at hand so that I can access them quickly but I also want to protect them. I have a few options; 1. I could incorporate them into the bench itself, but...

    Hey All I'm looking for some input into my next tool purchase. I want to upgrade my 7 year old $99 10" Delta mitre saw to a 10" dual bevel slider. I want a good one to last me for a long while. I'm not interested in a 12" saw because all the blades I have are 10" and they are just to big and...

    Lumberjocks, Recently I have been looking through a catalog I received from "Japan Woodworker" and I liked both the look and prices for the tools that are in the catalog and on the site. I am trying to find out how well these tools perform and how they rate against their American or traditional...

    Hello Fellow Lumberjocks This is my first post - please excuse me if I sound like a newbie - I am! If anyone could share with me the dimensions for the wooden table top parts for the Ridgid RS1000 radial arm saw I would be most appreciative. I recently bought this saw used on kijiji here in...

    Hey everyone, how are you doing? Well lets keep it short, I'm kinda new to woodworking but not a new designer, so while learning more about woodworking and saws I decided to create Saws 101 Infographic. I think it will be much easier for everyone to understand what each of saw does this way...

    Hi all! I recently found an old Disston at a garage sale. I can't seem to figure out which one it is though. Take a look at the pictures. Wheat handle, straight back, and what really throws me off is the notch cut on the back of the blade. I don't even know the right words to describe it. Can...

    Hey folks, my son is looking for a mini table saw, with 4" or 5 1/2" blade, that can cut up to 3/4" hardwood. He would like to keep the price at $150 or lower if possible. Any suggestions? Most everything we've found so far is doing good to cut 1/4" balsa.

    I have these old hand saws and was wondering if they are worth fixing up, I would like to do more with hand tools. If they are worth the effort, what are some good steps to take to restore them? Thank for any help or advice you can provide!

    Following some of the plane and other tool threads has been pretty interesting and informational for me. My thought, why not a saw dump. I'm starting to gain some interest after picking up this Disston 70. Today I found a chest full of tools with two interesting saws. A E M Boynton, which I...

    Hi, I recently bought this Disston No.8 and looking at the stamp I am guessing its age is between 1890 - 1906. The nib is still in good order. Clearly it doesn't have a No.8 handle as at some stage in its life it was fitted with another. The medallion is a Disston replacement type. I am...
